We are a creative school that nurtures the children's creativity through the teaching of skills, competitions, participation in the Arts Award scheme and opportunities to perform though out the school year. We have a variety of musical lessons being taught every week by specialist teachers from the music service, who are also supporting children in achieving their music medals. Children across the school also have the opportunity to work with an artist who comes in to teach every Monday afternoon. All children in Key Stage 2 learn Spanish too, which is taught by Ms Holmes.
Music is taught across the school by Mrs Dattani, children learn to play instruments which include percussion, glockenspiels and djembes. They also learn to sing songs from a wide variety of musical genres. The art curriculum is also taught in all year groups and encouraged further through art weeks and participation in city wide projects, the most recent being the Big Sleuth.
We have been learning and experiencing the Spanish Catholic celebration 'Semana Santa.'Children made props and floats and paraded like the do in the Spanish streets.
Spanish club have enjoyed learning a variety of subjects through lots of fun, games, dancing and parties. To really embrace our subject and to experience real Spanish - we went on our trip to a Tapas restaurant in Grand Central Birmingham. The children ordered in Spanish and sampled lots of tapas including calameres (squid) and tortilla de patatas. (Spanish omelette)
We had a great time at the Summer Concert. The children have made so much musical progress this year! Well done everyone!
Arts week has been inspired by our Sun Bear 'Lord Regent of the Forest'. Children entered creative competitions: design our sun bear; make and bake competition ( see twitter for the videos) and the library poster competition. Everyone had fun working on an arts project and the creativity extended to the forest school where sessions led by our forest school teachers were all about getting creative with natural resources. Our Cake sale raised £1000 for the Birmingham Children's Hospital.
A small group of talented children in Year 4 and 5 are working towards their Arts Award Explore. The theme is 'Wild in Art'. Look at their amazing nature mandalas that they created in the Forest School!
We had a fantastic time at the Christmas concert! There was singing, and guitar and keyboard playing. Everyone was involved from Nursery to Year 6, even the staff! Looking forward to the Spring Concert already!
We had so much fun recording our CD ready for Christmas 2016! Every child in the school from Nursery to Year 6 was involved. Even the teachers sang a track! CDs can be purchased from the school or at the Christmas concert which will be on Monday 12th December and Tuesday 13th December.
